looks to build upon that success with the upcoming single release "There She Goes." The single is set for release on August 3rd, 2018, with advanced copies available on Amazon Music
as of July 11th, 2018. The release will also feature the single "Love Rising," released as a single in music video format only earlier this year. Links have been provided for the public and media to view the video for "Love Rising." Radio

native Brandon James
was born "Brandon James
Foster". He states that he "started doing music as an outlet for depression early in life. I wasn't very popular in school and I was considered a latchkey kid due to my mother's work schedule and my father's battles with alcoholism." On a teacher's suggestion to find extracurricular activities, Brandon
joined the choir. He finished the eighth grade with a determination to elevate his understanding of music and succeed with his own music.
Constantly challenging himself to become better at his craft, he has taken voice lessons from Bobby
Wilsyn, Ars Musica, and Andrew Schultze. He has played with Earth, Wind & Fire
and performed at some of Chicago's most notable venues including the UIC Pavilion and the House of Blues. Brandon
has also earned a degree in music performance and business from the Columbia College of Chicago. Forever seeking to share his story and testimony, Brandon
seeks to inspire, touch hearts and provoke thought with his music.
